The EFA Board of Directors have reviewed the requirements of the Director Development Program (DDP), based on feedback received from the EFA regional meetings in January. After careful
consideration, the Board has decided to remove the requirement for candidates to have at least 5 years of experience in the egg industry.
EFA’s Director Development Program was created to engage the producer membership and stimulate Board succession planning. Each year, one appointed producer will participate in EFA Board meetings as a non-voting Director, to gain exposure to how the EFA Board
operates and familiarize themselves with topics of critical importance to the Alberta egg industry.
Interested producers can apply by submitting a letter to the EFA Board, explaining why they would like to be a Director. Letters must be submitted by March 1st of each year. The Board will then appoint one producer to the DDP for a period of 1 year.
